Review: Pucked UP (Pucked #2) by Helena Hunting

Pucked Up by Helena Hunting

Miller “Buck” Butterson has been banging his way through life ever since a puck to the face fixed his messed up front teeth, and he was drafted into the NHL during his first year of college. After five years of deflecting goals on the ice and scoring them with puck bunnies across the Continental US and parts of Canada, Miller is ready for a girlfriend. A real girlfriend of the non-bunny variety. One he takes on dates and doesn’t jump into bed with after five seconds of conversation.

Miller thinks he’s found that woman in his teammate’s sister. Except, unlike Alex Waters, center, team captain and all round nice guy—who happens to be dating his step-sister—Miller’s manwhore reputation is well earned, and not blown out of proportion by the media. Beyond that minor detail, Miller doesn’t know the first thing about having a girlfriend. But he’s determined to make it happen.

What he doesn’t take into account is the amount of time and effort relationships require, or that constantly letting bunnies take selfies with him to post all over social media isn’t going to win him any points in the boyfriend department. Miller learns—not so quickly—that if he wants to make Sunshine “Sunny” Waters fall for him, he going to have to do a whole lot more than show her his stick skills in the bedroom.

My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

This was a fun read, light and sexy. However I didn’t like it as much as Pucked, I think it had less plot and the first chapters were too slow, so I wasn’t really convinced about the story at first.

I really like the characters, though. Sunny was fun and kind of original too, I disliked the parts where she doubted herself and her relationship with Buck, she charmed me anyway. And Buck surprised me a lot, because I thought he was just a jock with more muscle than brain, but he was authentic and pretty normal, and kind of a big bear I wanted to cuddle with half the time.

I don’t know if them together were as special as Violet and Alex in Pucked, I think their romance was nice but there weren’t fireworks when I read them together, I didn’t feel much chemistry between them, but I think their story was cute.

I laughed a lot, and the sexy parts were really steamy and yummy!

And I’m really interested in getting to know Lily & Randy’s story in Pucked Over, which I can tell you I might have won an ARC and be able to review it soon!
